Yet another energy supplier announces major price hike – beat the rises with NGP

Yet another major UK energy supplier has announced a price rise as SSE confirmed its electricity prices would shoot up by 14.9 per cent in April.

Its gas prices will remain unchanged, but it’s still a blow for household and small business customers who will see bills rise by around £73 per year (small household).

Energy price rises are as inevitable as death and taxes – the only way to beat them and to secure the best value is to speak to the experts at NGP and let us negotiate your energy contracts on your behalf.

  • Npower is raising its standard tariff electricity prices by 15% from 16 March, and gas prices by 4.8%
